What do we see from our reflection?
An image in reverse, not quite the same
Familiar wrinkles around the eyes,
Do we love or despise
The person staring back from glass
Wishing we were something else,
Richer, thinner, smarter, kind…
Memories that springs to mind
Of yesteryear, thoughts and deeds,
Friends and comfort, hands to hold,
What or who do we really see?
Are we who we were meant to be,
Reflection from another place
Left and right replace each other,
Touch the surface, smooth and cold
Unlike the true face, creased and old.
